What should I do when I have a clogged drain?
Homeowners can take several steps to prevent a clogged drain. In the bathroom, only moderate amounts of toilet tissue should be thrown and flushed. However, the steps mentioned above are mostly preventative, and when these simple steps are not sufficient to resolve the issue, a professional plumber is necessary to inspect and diagnose the underlying problem. In more extreme cases, snaking or hydrojetting may be necessary.
How can I detect a water leak?
Detecting water leaks in plumbing fixtures is best left to the professionals. A professional can easily detect a leak in the toilet tank because they will use a specialized colored solution. The colored liquid is poured into the tank and allowed to dissolve. After several minutes, it’s possible to see if any of the colored water has leaked into the toilet bowl without any flushing action.
When it comes to detecting leaks in supply and drain pipes, specialized electronic equipment is used. For example, the flow rate of water is compared along several portions of a pipe that’s suspected of having leaks.
How can I extend the lifespan of my water heater?
Regular maintenance and service can improve the lifespan of a gas or electric water heater. It’s important that the tank be flushed out and drained completely in order to eliminate the accumulation of scale and other solid deposits. In fact, such undesirable material can gradually settle down in the bottom of a water heater tank.
The internal pressure of a water heater must also be inspected and regulated frequently in order to prevent possible explosions and excessive pressure gradients in the water supply line. In electric water heaters, the anode and heating elements may need to be replaced due to corrosion and other heavy usage.
